Highs:

  • Designers have nothing but nice things to say about Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen wedding gown.  (WWD)
  • Facebook launched Deals, which means there’ll be daily discounts coming straight to your newsfeed.  (NYT)
  • The much-beloved designer discount department store Century 21 has finally launched an e-commerce venture.  (High Low)

Today was not the day to be a spoilsport — other designers had only compliments for Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.

Lows:

  • Retail was badly hurt across the South in the wake of the massive tornadoes that struck this week.  (WWD)
  • Apparently social media has little to no effect on online retail purchasing.  (Mashable)
  • Now you can order groceries from Walmart.  Don’t worry, they’re offering twelve kinds of Triscuits.  (High Low)
